How sad am I?

Found this yummy looking recipe whilst trawling for info for my Nanowrimo thingie... and for some reason felt compelled to blog it instead of losing it in the depths of my Recipe folder. If anyone else tried it, let me know. ;)



  • 2lb Best end of neck Welsh Lamb
  • 1/2 lb Carrots
  • 2 large Leeks
  • 1/2 oz Flour
  • 1 small Swede or Turnip
  • 1 lb Potatoes
  • 1 oz parsley
  • Salt and Pepper


  1. Put the meat into the saucepan, cover with cold water, add salt and pepper, bring slowly to the boil and skin carefully. (This can be done the night before and the fat allowed to set on the surface. This makes it easier to skim off)
  2. Then add the carrots (cut in half), the swede (sliced) and the white of the leeks, and simmer gently for two to two-and-a-half hours.
  3. Add the potatoes (cut in flour) and continue to simmer for another 30 minutes.
  4. When the potatoes are almost cooked, thicken with flour and a little water.
  5. Lastly add the green of the leeks and parsley (chopped) and simmer for another 10 minutes and serve in basins while hot
